  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    employment 2.jpeg

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading

Remand

Recommended Posts

Vet had a case,last 4 years,in Washington. I sent IRIS-----This is response he got. No word ever before this. Vet just got letter,stating that his appeals was remanded back to your Regional office from the Board of Veterans Appeals.

Says Currently your appeal is pending review with the Decision Review Officer.During this process,the DRO will review all evidence,arguments,statements from your representative,and any other pertinent information as it relates to your claim.

We are unable to give you a time frame when this will be complete as the DRO reviews Claims in the ORDER THEY ARE RECEIVED.

He was shot in eye,received 30%-but has had all kinds of problems in the last 4 years-where his eye has gotten worse,now has glocomma,had cataract removed,his eye is always crying,depressed.

He is on SS Disability-from other things-he is all banged up=will never work again./////

Should he go ahead an file for Secondary Conditions-Plus unemployability as it appears that his case will take a long time with the DRO anyway????

PLEASE HELP ME SEE WHICH WAY TO GO FROM HERE!!!!!

HELP PLEASE !!!

Can you move this post to Claim-Compensation where it will be read by more people

How well do you know this vet?

When did you start trying to help him?

Did I understand you to say that there has been no contact between the VA and this vet for four years?

Okay.

It has already been "remanded", back to the VA Regional Office, for review by the DRO.

According to what the remand required, is according to how long the decision will take. That and which VARO, time of year, case load, etc.

You are a lot closer now than then.

What, exactly, did the remand call for?

BTW, I'm a believer in the IRIS system (most of the time, at other times I think that they operate on the "answer for the week" mode, you know, they all gather round the coffee pot in the breakroom on Monday morning and "pick" an answer).

    • Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask
      Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask. Chris Attig - Veterans Law Blog 

      <br style="color:#000000; text-align:start">How to Hire an Attorney For Your VA Claim or Appeal Free Guidebook available on the Veterans Law Blog

      I got an email the other day from a Veteran.  It had 2 or 3 sentences about his claim, and then closed at the end: “Please call me. So-and-so told me you were the best and I want your help.”

      While I appreciate the compliments, I shudder a little at emails like this.  For 2 reasons.

      First, I get a lot of emails like this.  And while I diligently represent my clients – I often tell them we will pursue their claim until we have no more appeals or until we win – I am most assuredly not the best.

      There are a LOT of damn good VA Disability attorneys out there.  (Most, if not all, of the best are members of the National Organization of Veterans Advocates…read about one of them, here)

      Second, I don’t want Veterans to choose their attorney based on who their friend thought was the best.  I want Veterans to choose the VA Disability attorney who is BEST for their case.

      In some situations, that may be the Attig Law Firm.

      But it may also be be Hill and Ponton, or Chisholm-Kilpatrick, or Bergman Moore.  Or any one of the dozens of other attorneys who have made the representation of Veterans their professional life’s work.

      There are hundreds of attorneys that are out there representing Veterans, and I’m here to tell you that who is best for your friend’s case may not be the best for your case.

      How do you Find the Best VA Disability Attorney for your Claim?

      First, you have to answer the question: do you NEED an attorney?

      Some of you don’t...
